David Bowcott and Adrian Pellen have joined NFP, a leading property and casualty broker, benefits consultant, wealth manager and retirement advisor. The pair will co-lead the company’s North America Construction & Infrastructure Group, providing clients with comprehensive construction and surety services designed specifically for complex national and cross-border projects.

Bowcott, a familiar face to readers of On-Site magazine, is based in Toronto and joins NFP from Aon, where he oversaw growth, innovation and insights for its Global Construction and Infrastructure Group. Pellen joins from Marsh, where he was a senior liaison to clients delivering risk and insurance solutions for complex construction and infrastructure projects. Both report to Henry Lombardi, executive vice-president, Property and Casualty.

“Last year’s historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act ensures there will be a massive amount of spending on construction projects across the country over the next decade and beyond,” said Doug Hammond, NFP’s chairman and CEO. “This is great news for the construction industry, but it comes with a unique set of challenges that can compromise project success and profitability. Appointing these two industry leaders and establishing an integrated NFP North America Construction and Infrastructure business, strengthens our position in the marketplace and ability to help clients navigate complexities and protect their assets.”

In addition to writing a regular column for On-Site magazine, Bowcott has experience in global construction and enabling clients and partners to achieve optimal risk profiles for their organizations and projects. He also serves as a board member for the Canadian Construction Association and The Institute of Asset Management.

Pellen has cross-border experience serving the infrastructure sector, addressing project risk, account management and claims. He is also a U.S. Branch Council member for IPFA, the global professional association for the infrastructure and energy financing industry.

“We’re very excited to welcome David and Adrian to NFP as we advance toward becoming the pre-eminent risk control driven insurance advisor and broker,” said Lombardi. “These hires bring unmatched complex project risk advisory talent and reinforce our commitment to a cross-border North America strategy centered on building specialized areas of expertise across P&C and benefits.”
